Quoting Ralf Mardorf :

If that's true you really should offer your ears to the codec
creators. They want people with golden ears who can hear if their
tweeks are for the better or worse.

And feel free to post your ABX score of the files in
http://www.musikhuset.org/~peder/AxelF.zip .
AxelF.wav is the CD original, AxelFMP3-165.wav is made with
lame-3.99.4 -V4, resulting in an 165.2 kbps file, and AxelFMP3-124.wav
is made with -V6, resulting in an 124 kbps file
Compare the original with the 124 and see if you can tell which is
which. Assuming you can, do the same with the original and the 165.

Or you can send me a 10s snippet of your favorite music and I'll make
MP3s of that for ABX:ing.

> Most

That's very likely "the power of suggestion". Do try and point out the
"lossy" part while they're listening to the original. It wouldn't
surprise me if they started noticing the "loss" in that all of a sudden.

> Back to audio ;), if you aren't accustomed to MP3s, but accustomed to

Which might very well be because you know that it's an MP3 and you
"know" MP3s sound bad.
Please do show that you can't stand MP3s by providing an ABX score.
